IOL: Deaf, dumb girl raped


April 07 2007

A deaf and dumb woman was raped, allegedly by two men in Butterworth on Saturday morning, Eastern Cape police said.

The 20-year-old grade 11 pupil from Gauteng, on holiday in the area, was accompanied to her family’s house following a party in the Bungeni informal settlement, said Captain Jackson Manatha.

“The friends left her in her room with her family. Around 4am two men entered this room and forcefully took her to a shack where they took turns to rape her.”

She told her friends – using sign language – who took her to a local police station.

“A case of rape was opened with the assistance of one of her friends who knew sign language and interpreted,” said Manatha.

He said the perpetrators were known and their arrests were expected soon. – Sapa
